How Arsenal could still ruin Tottenham Hotspur’s season 0

Posted on March 06, 2018 by Harry Kettle

St Totteringham’s Day, also known as the annual holiday where Arsenal supporters celebrate finishing above their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, is likely going to be cancelled for a second consecutive year.

The Gunners find themselves thirteen points behind Spurs with just nine games to go, and when you consider that Mauricio Pochettino’s men are comfortably positioned in fourth spot, that also means Arsene Wenger only has one realistic chance of securing Champions League football at the Emirates next season.

Ironically enough, however, that route could also serve as the perfect foil for Tottenham’s plans of entering Europe’s top club competition in 2018/19.

Jack Wilshere issues apology to Arsenal faithful – will they appreciate it? 0

Posted on March 05, 2018 by Harry Kettle

As Arsenal fans continue to come to terms with what is becoming a disastrous league campaign, Jack Wilshere has taken to Twitter in order to try and somewhat restore the team’s image with an apology.

This isn’t the first time that the 26-year-old has been forced to explain himself, although this time, he seems to agree with the fans regarding the recent criticism of the club.

The tweet, which was put out in the early hours of the morning, said the following: “I’m sorry to the gooners out there. You deserve better. Thats all i have to say. I know its difficult at the moment in this difficult period we are going through as a team but we need you. We will do better but please stick with us”.

Nice president tells Arsenal and Tottenham that Seri won’t be leaving in January 0

Posted on September 21, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere has stated that coveted midfielder Jean Michael Seri will not be sold when the January transfer window opens. The 26-year-old was close to a move to Barcelona in the summer before the deal broke down at the last minute. The Catalans have since signed midfielder Paulinho and seem content with their options in the engine room this season.

Arsenal and Tottenham, however, remain interested according to reports. The Gunners have recently welcomed back Jack Wilshere who can provide creativity and ball retention in midfield, but his injury record means he’s unlikely to last the entire season fit. Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka has been the familiar partnership of late, but Seri would be an improvement on either player.

Transfer boost for Arsenal as Nice president hints at Seri exit 0

OGC Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivère has revealed the club will sanction two more sales to raise more for incomings, which could mean Arsenal-target Jean-Michael Seri could be available this summer, reports the Metro.

Believed to have a £36m release clause, the Nice midfielder could yet be on his way to Arsenal after the latest revelations. “There should be three or four more arrivals, and two departures. We want to finish these as soon as possible, but certain cases take more time than others,” Rivère told L’Equipe.

Arsenal targeting Manchester City wonderkid 0

According to the Mirror, Arsenal have entered the race to sign Manchester City attacking-midfielder Jadon Sancho. The 17-year-old has attracted the interest of a host of clubs this summer and is yet to commit his future to the Sky Blues. Tottenham are believed to have had an approach rebuffed for the coveted youngster.

Sancho, who is being monitored by Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, was a standout performer at the U17 European Championships in May, winning the Golden Player award – previously won by Toni Kroos, Wayne Rooney and Cesc Fabregas.

Arsenal face competition from Tottenham for Nice’s Seri 0

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to steal OGC Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri from under the nose of fierce rivals Arsenal this summer. The 25-year-old has attracted interest from AS Roma and Barcelona, but Tottenham are believed to be pursuing the Ivorian heavily and may have edged themselves in front of Arsenal in the race to sign him.

Nice are holding out for £35m, the player’s release clause, and rejected a £20m bid from Roma recently. Seri has enjoyed a standout season at the Allianz Riviera, scoring and creating 16 goals in 34 Ligue 1 games while making 74 chances and boasting 37 successful dribbles (84%). He looks set for a departure this summer as a result but he’s still undecided about a destination.

Xhaka underwhelming and a liability in the Arsenal midfield 0

Posted on May 01, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka was one of many players who under-performed in Sunday’s North London derby defeat against Tottenham Hotspur, but his showing has been symptomatic of the Gunners’ problems this season and why they have been so easy to beat in 2017.

The former Borussia Monchengladbach man made just one tackle and interception in his 64 minutes on the pitch before being brought off for Danny Welbeck, losing the ball in his challenge. He was also beaten twice by his opposition in the game and made the joint-most fouls in the side.

Why didn’t Arsenal sign Wanyama before Tottenham this summer? 0

Sunday’s North London derby will pit Arsenal against a formidable Tottenham Hotspur midfield – Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama. However, the latter could have been an Arsenal player this season for as little as £12M had the Gunners pursued him. Instead, Arsene Wenger spent three times the price on former Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka – a move heavily criticised. So why did Arsenal overlook Wanyama?

Returning Theo Walcott to inject more pace into the Arsenal attack 0

Posted on November 04, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott is expected to return to the frontline ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium, having recently recovered from a hamstring strain. He’s trained with the rest of the Arsenal squad this week and will be itching to pick up where he left off last month.

The 27-year-old missed Arsenal’s 2-0 win against Reading in the EFL Cup on October 25, Saturday’s 4-1 thrashing of Sunderland in the Premier League and Tuesday’s 3-2 comeback victory over PFC Ludogorets Razgrad in the Champions League. His absence has been missed as the Gunners notably suffered from a lack of pace in attack in midweek.

Monreal could return in time for Sunday’s meeting with Tottenham 0

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal dropped a hint on social media that he could be in the frame to return for Sunday’s North London derby with bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The Spanish left-back has been out of action for a week with a quadriceps strain, missing Saturday’s 4-1 win over Sunderland and Tuesday’s last-gasp victory against PFC Ludogorets Razgard, but may be back to feature against Spurs, according to his Instagram account, messaging: “Good feeling training today !! Looking forward the derby.”
